Ms. Julie MacFarlane reports


With special coverage planned from this Friday, Jan. 25, 2013, right through to Sunday, Jan. 27, 2013, BCE Inc.'s CTV News is the go-to source for this weekend's Ontario Liberal Party leadership race. Beginning with CP24's Your Next Premier coverage starting Friday at 7 p.m., CTV News will bring Ontarians breaking news through minute-by-minute coverage all weekend long.

Correspondents from CP24, CTV News, CTV News Channel, and CTV News and CP24 websites have mobilized to bring the complete story right up until the new Liberal leader is named and beyond.


CP24's live comprehensive coverage of the party's convention, Your Next Premier, begins Friday evening with Premier Dalton McGuinty's farewell speech, followed by full coverage throughout the weekend, including the first ballot results at 12:30 p.m. ET on Saturday, straight through until the new leader is chosen. Then, on Sunday, Jan. 27, 2013, at 11 a.m., CP24 provides live coverage of the new Liberal leader's first day on the job. Throughout the weekend, Ann Rohmer and Stephen LeDrew are live from the heart of the convention, with special political guests providing additional commentary. Additionally, CP24's Melissa Grelo, George Lagogianes, Kyle Christie, Karman Wong, Katie Simpson and CTV Toronto's Paul Bliss will be on site reporting from the convention floor at Maple Leaf Gardens throughout the weekend.

CTV News

CTV Toronto's Ken Shaw leads coverage for CTV News across Ontario with live updates throughout the voting on Saturday afternoon. Then, Toronto's most experienced and most-watched news team breaks down the voting on CTV News at Six on Saturday evening. CTV Toronto's Senior Queen's Park reporter Mr. Bliss is live from the convention floor, walking viewers through the new premier's next steps, while CTV Toronto's weekend co-anchor Colin D'Mello will be outside the convention covering what is expected to be a large and loud protest by teachers.

CTV News and CP24 websites

Bringing viewers closer to the events affecting their province this weekend, CP24 and CTV News websites will team up to deliver content from the convention. Featuring complementary coverage -- including additional live video streams, a behind-the-scenes look at the convention from the social media desk and live coverage from the convention floor -- both websites deliver users an in-depth experience for visitors. Viewers can also join the conversation through a live chat hosted on the CTV News website and follow the live, behind-the-scenes election desk webcast at the CP24 website. Both sources will feature a special convention section with photos, information and the latest stories on the race.
